Teeth & Gums

My gum health has been steadily declining for years due to smoking . In November a periodontist wanted to pull 8 of my molars due to deep pockets and replace with implants.  My gums are bad (lots of receeding) with roots showing on some teeth, but my teeth are not loose so I declined this "treatment".  I hoped that once I quit smoking my gums would do some healing since I'd like to keep my teeth as long as possible. Has anyone experienced noticeable improvement in their gum health since quitting?
